IN-HOSPITAL LACTATION SERVICES
Get off to a great start from the first look, latch, and love.
Birth is a powerful time to build breastfeeding confidence. Gone are the days when families needed to find their own lactation care solutions. When families give birth at a facility we serve, lactation care is a seamless part of the experience.
Why would we need lactation care?
Lactation happens, but studies show lactation care helps families reach their breastfeeding goals. We’re passionate about helping you understand your body’s abilities and your baby’s needs so you can make informed choices. We help families find their own success!
How does it work?
When you give birth in a facility we serve, we will be there to help you. Our lactation consultants make daily rounds during your stay to assess your infant feeding needs. Your lactation consultant will provide a personalized lactation care plan and communicate it to the nursing staff and your healthcare provider so you’ll have 24×7 infant feeding support.
What’s an IBCLC?
Your Breastfeeding Success lactation consultant is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). IBCLCs are certified by an internationally recognized board to meet rigorous standards and demonstrate specialized skills in clinical management of breastfeeding and human lactation.
What’s a lactation care plan?
Your IBCLC will create a care plan based on your infant feeding needs, goals, and challenges. Our lactation care plans are created in collaboration with your hospital healthcare providers and serve as a handoff to your outpatient healthcare provider. We communicate with nursing staff, your OBGYN, and with your baby’s pediatrician to reach one shared goal: optimal nutrition, healthy baby, happy family.
